Ballard Alliance organizes fall food drive in lieu of annual trick-or-treat

Instead of trick-or-treating at businesses this year, the Ballard Alliance is organizing for a food drive to benefit the Ballard Food Bank.

“In lieu of Trick or Treat in Ballard, we are asking our neighbors
to give instead of get this Halloween/Thanksgiving season,” the Alliance writes on their website.

The food drive will run from Oct. 16 – Nov. 16, and there are 21 food drop-off locations scattered around Ballard; visit this website for the full list of participating businesses.

The Ballard Food Bank is in need of the following: canned soups and meals, chili, bars, peanut butter, Top Ramen, mac and cheese, shelf-stable alternative milks, oatmeal packets, individual cereals, cup of soup, canned chicken, salmon, tuna, snack packs: nuts, trail mix, fruit snacks, crackers.

The food bank is also accepting cash donations; click here to give.
